I've been here with some friends..they were excited to bring me there!First of all I never go eating Italian out of Italy, I find it fool. In fact, it's unbelievable how many people can sit there and eat with such happy faces!!!I found it just disgusting and horrible! I ordered shrimp balls and they served in a plate of sauce... More

Had an amazing meal tonight with the family. Had the grandma Sunday sauce for myself. Braciole ,Sausage and meatballs absolutely out of this world. Started with an amazing cold antipasto. Tender Calamari. My wife had the strangled priest. Never tasted a sauce like this before. We finish strong with tiramisu and a cannoli Sundae. Bobby the owner took great care... More

I recently visited this restaurant. This was my second visit. I am not impressed by the food. We ordered the calamari and antipasta. These were just ok. I ordered the veal parmigiana and my wife ordered the eggplant rollitini. The sauce in the veal parmigiana with medium sauce was too sweet...too much sugar. The veal was poor quality...tough and chewy.... More

I love to come to Vincent's. I mostly come for lunch because of the high volume in the evening. The food is consistantly good. My one issue that does not thrill me, is that every time I go there (more so in the evening), I feel rushed by the staff. I have had wait staff removing plates from the table... More

Poor ingredients...sugar is way up as a main ingredient. A seedy atmosphere in need of a good wash down, Windows a filthy for an eatery. I found it so unappealing. Yes, there are much worse but prices match the low end - here it's priced as if it were good. I will never step foot there again!

I went to Vincent's Clam Bar based on Trip Adviser reviews and a recommendation from the hotel where I stayed. I arrived about 35 minutes before closing so am chalking up a couple of the less that great comments I have to that. I can not say enough great things about the service; I was seated right away, my server... More

This restaurant is crazy busy - so I recommend reservations. The food is fresh and flavorful. There was a lot of choice and some very unique couplings of food.

Been dining there for years and the food has been consistently excellent. They make Calamari the way it should be made. The service is excellent too and that's why they're still there after all these years. If Vincent's gets a bad review it means the customer was just in a bad mood because of a impacted wisdom tooth and has... More

I ordered the linguine with clam sauce and I am glad I did. Even though they don't have a lot of whole clams in the shell, the dish has a ton of large chopped clams in it. The sauce as excellent flavor and there was plenty of pasta. I was thinking that I might order a dozen steamers but I... More

Great Italian restaurant. Great food, and quick service. Always friendly staff. It can get loud inside but it's a nice ambiance. Everything there is great.
